Two of Tasmania’s strongest advocates for the state’s most vulnerable children have backed the appointment of Leanne Mclean as Tasmania’s new Children’s Commissioner.

Kym Goodes, CEO, TasCOSS, and Ros Cornish, CEO, Lady Gowrie Tasmania, who were members of the selection panel that recommended the appointment of Leanne McLean, said the panel’s focus was solely on the best interests of Tasmania’s children.

“This young woman was a standout applicant and in interview gave the panel absolute confidence that she was the right person for the role.”

“We are strong advocates for an independent children’s commissioner. Independence from government is the cornerstone of the Commissioner’s ability to act as a powerful voice for Tasmanian children.”

“As panel members we were the guardians of this role on behalf of children and young people in Tasmania and ensured that the appointment was going to be a strong voice.”

“The role of Commissioner is vital to ensure the best interests of Tasmanian children are an absolute priority in our State.”

“The position requires strong relationships, trust and leadership and Ms McLean was the standout applicant for the role with the desirable vison, skills and tenacity to succeed.”
